Fire and Water" (picture left) - and now we can reveal that Fantagraphics and myself are again teaming up to put together a reprint volume of Bill Everett's non-Marvel Golden Age work (from 1938 to 1942). This will be very similar to my "Steve Ditko Archives" series (full-color, 240 pages, introduction by me). We're aiming for a San Diego Comicon 2011 release date.
So how can you win a copy of the book? We'll speak more to the contents (and how you can earn a free copy by helping out with scans) in the coming days, but what we're looking for now is your help in choosing a title for "The Bill Everett Archives". What we need is something in the vein of my Steve Ditko Archives series. Volume one for that was "Strange Suspense: The Steve Ditko Archives v1" and volume two was "Unexplored Worlds: The Steve Ditko Archives v2". A play on words from a title Everett worked on, or from a character that Everett worked on, is ideal, but it doesn't have to be that. It can't be more than 3 words in front of "The Bill Everett Archives".
So, in the Comments section below, post your title by Friday EOD and if I pick it over what I already have come up with, then you get a copy of the book! You can also post it on my Bill Everett Facebook Page. Here are the titles I already have: "Amazing Men: The Bill Everett Archives v1"; "Heroic Comics: ..."; "Heroic Tales: ..."; "Golden Age: ..."; "Deep Blue Sea: ..."; "Raging Waters: ..."; "Just Add Water: ..."; "Raging Sea: ..."; "Thicker Than Water: ..."; "Hell or High Water: ... "; "Troubled Waters: ..."; "Above Water: ..."; "Waterworks: ..."; "See More Glass: ..." (ok, I was losing it by that last one...).
Post your title below and I'll report back next week on this Blog what the winning selection is!
